Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WMA52 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Its actually a WMA54 ... can I change the programmer?

... I mean can I physically replace it? Is it easy to do that? Does it cost a lot? Is it worth it ... or should I go back to the 50's and do it all by hand (just kidding!) ... I have moved to France and now I only use cold water cycles but the machine does not seem to be able to follow any of the programmes without causing it either to stop or continue on the same part of the cycle - unless I manually change it by pressing the appropriate button ... even then it seems to get confused and pause - so if I press the "Start" button - it momentarily goes back to the previous part of the cycle - then move on to the one it has just completed ... and so it repeats to the process ad infinitum ... AAAARRGGHH!

You can change the control unit, but they are not cheap,and once fitted it has to be programmed in a certain sequence to make sure it recieves the correct instructions for your model.
Probably cheaper to buy a new washer and start off with a new guarantee.

When spinning it makes a very loud noise, i'm worried its dry bearings, it seems a big job to change and expensive? is that right?


I concur with your initial diagnosis, and would agree that it is a fairly substanial repair to carry out.
It involves a complete strip down of washer, nand removeal of drum .
Not a job to undertake unless you feel competent to do so.
As for cost, it is quite an expensive repair to carry out, as it could involve having to replace the drum shaft if it is worn.

What has caused the short circuit on the circuit board by the programme dial?


Could be a problem with the motor that has caused it, usually caused by the brushes wearing down and short circuiting the armature, causing the board to blow, you need to check the brushes before doing anything else.

Machine has become very noisey especially on the spinning programmes, is it time for a new one?


It could mean that either the bearings or the spider needs to be replaced. If you try to spin the wash basket by hand, does it turn smooth and quiet or do you hear a rumble sound? If it is noisy, it probally needs a bearing change. To change the bearing, the washer has to be taken completely appart to get access to the bearing. The parts cost are relatively inexpensive, but the labor costs is high due to the time to disassemble and reassemble the washer. If you are handy, and have the tools, you can buy the parts and do it yourself. You have to decide whether it is worth spending the time and money to fix or to purchase a new machine.

WMA54 won't empty water? We've emptied filter but


Could be the pump, but they do not often fail.
I would check the main hose or the pump itself for a blockage.
Try blowing down the hose to see if it is clear.

The water wont drain from my machine from the wash


What you need to do is check the pump is getting a feed to it
Select a spin cycle, and with a test meter, test for voltage across the pump terminals, if you are getting a feed, and the pump is working ok, then you obviously have a blockage beyond the pump.
If no voltage then could be a broken wire, or a faulty programmer/board.
ONLY CHECK FOR VOLTAGE IF YOU ARE COMPETENT TO DO SO, as it takes no prisoners.
Hope this helps.

Programme not going through cycle


Hi does the machine fill with water? If the machine programme dial does not move then it is more than likely to be the heat cycle that needs looking at!
If you are local to me then we can arrange a visit to repair.
Good luck.............................

Hotpoint Aquarius WMA54 very noisy during spin


Hi, if your H/P is noisy on the spin cycle, just open the door and turn the drum a few times. If you feel some play, or kind of loud huming noise, then it is the bearings, very, very common on H/P WMA's.
